Snohomish holds off Kamiak 3-2

SNOHOMISH — After building a 3-1 lead, the Snohomish girls soccer team survived a late goal by Kamiak to pull out a 3-2 victory in both teams’ Wesco 4A league opener.

“I was really proud of them. They played all the way up to our expecations and then some,” Snohomish head coach April VanAssche said. “They played composed, they played mature, I was very happy.”

The Panthers came out the gates hot and got on the board in the eighth minute with a goal from Ellie Otteson. Madison Pollock scored her first of two goals on the night to put the Panthers up 2-0 in the 43rd minute off a pass from Holly Rothering. Pollock scored her second goal in the 72nd minute, once again off a pass from Rothering, to put the Panthers up 3-1.

“Holly does a great job of creating opportunites for everybody, but tonight her and Madison just had things going,” VanAssche said.

Kamiak cut the deficit to 3-1 in the 56th minute after Tyler Adcock cashed in on a penalty kick. The Knights made it interesting when a goal in the 78th minute by Bailey Lux-Lowry made the score 3-2, but Snohomish goalie Taylor Nipinski held on for the remainder of the match to give the Panthers their first victory of the season.
